Credentialed Clinical Instructor Program - Level II (formerly ACCIP)

Friday and Saturday | November 17-18, 2017 | 8:00 am - 6:00 pm | 17 contact hours (1.7 C.E.U.s)

This voluntary program is designed for physical therapists who have supervised at least one student since becoming an APTA Credentialed Clinical Instructor (CI).

Over the past year the Clinical Instruction revision task force has been working hard to update and overhaul the ACCIP course. APTA granted permission to use the new content during this specific course to gain insight and valuable feedback from course participants.

Changes, including renaming the course to Credentialed Clinical Instructor Course – Level II (CCIP-Level II) are in response to the evolution of practice and DPT education over the 10+ years since the ACCIP originally launched.  “New” course content and learning activities emphasize participants being able to develop their own draft clinical curriculum. In the process we focus on how to explicitly diagnose & teach (using advanced teaching strategies) Professionalism/Ethics, Clinical Reasoning, Interprofessional education/collaborative practice, patient management within your specific setting (includes documentation and EBP), and Advocacy.

Program participants must complete prerequisites including completion of a CCIP II Participant Dossier, a series of three online professionalism modules, and review of four articles, in addition to completing a live 2-day program with an Assessment component. Upon successful completion of the entire course, participants are awarded the APTA CCIP Level II Clinical Instructor Credential

Program Outcomes:

At the conclusion of the Credentialed Clinical Instructor Program Level II, the participant will be able to:

  1. Outline a clinical curriculum specific to their clinical setting/practice.
  2. Advance clinical teaching concepts learned in the Credentialed Clinical Instructor Program, Level I (CCIP I) as applied to the novice-mastery clinical practice continuum.
  3. Integrate professionalism in a clinical curriculum that promotes the guiding principles to achieve the Vision for the Physical Therapy Profession (2013) and the core values.
  4. Diagnose and foster a student’s clinical reasoning.
  5. Outline a clinical curriculum to meet key learning experiences critical to patient management in their practice.
